    2. Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of the Frequency of Lipid Coronary Plaques in Current Smokers, Former Smokers, and Non-smokers

      Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of the Frequency of Lipid Coronary Plaques in Current Smokers, Former Smokers, and Non-smokers
      Smoking is associated with high incidence of cardiovascular events including acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We sought to characterize coronary plaques in patients with ongoing smoking using optical coherence tomography (OCT) compared to former smokers and nonsmokers. We identified 465 coronary plaques from 182 subjects who underwent OCT imaging for all three coronary arteries. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: current smokers (n=41), former smokers (n=67) and nonsmokers (n ...

    4. Distinct Morphological Features of Ruptured Culprit Plaque for Acute Coronary Events Compared to those with Silent Rupture and Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma: a Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Study

      Distinct Morphological Features of Ruptured Culprit Plaque for Acute Coronary Events Compared to those with Silent Rupture and Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma: a Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Study
      Objectives To identify specific morphological characteristics of ruptured culprit plaques (RCP) responsible for acute events, and compare them with ruptured non-culprit plaques (RNCP) and non-ruptured thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) in patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Background Non-ruptured TCFA and multiple ruptured plaques are detected in the same patients with ACS. It remains unknown whether certain morphological characteristics determine rupture of TCFA and subsequently result in ACS. Methods We analyzed ...

    5. Pancoronary Plaque Vulnerability in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and Ruptured Culprit Plaque: A Three-Vessel Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Pancoronary Plaque Vulnerability in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and Ruptured Culprit Plaque: A Three-Vessel Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Background Recent studies described different clinical and underlying plaque characteristics between patients with and without plaque rupture presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). In light of the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, we hypothesized that non-culprit plaques might also express different morphological features in these two groups of patients. Methods Thirty-eight patients with ACS who underwent 3-vessel optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging were identified from the Massachusetts General Hospital OCT Registry ...

      Feature Of The Week 8/4/13: MGH OCT Registry Reports on In Vivo OCT Studies of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule In Acute Coronary Syndrome
      Pathology studies reported that three most common causes of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or sudden cardiac death are plaque rupture, plaque erosion and calcified nodules. The morphological and clinical characteristics of the underlying pathology of ACS, especially plaque erosion and calcified nodule, have never been well studied in vivo. Using optical coherence tomography, we found that plaque erosions are the substrate for ACS in 31% of patients and calcified nodules ...

      In Vivo Diagnosis of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome by Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objectives To characterize the morphological features of plaque erosion and calcified nodule in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Background Plaque erosion and calcified nodule have not been systematically investigated in vivo . Methods One hundred and twenty-six patients with ACS who had undergone pre-intervention OCT imaging were included. The culprit lesions were classified as plaque rupture (PR), erosion (OCT-erosion), calcified nodule (OCT-CN), or others using ...

    9. Non-Culprit Coronary Plaque Characteristics of Chronic Kidney Disease

      Non-Culprit Coronary Plaque Characteristics of Chronic Kidney Disease
      Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) promotes the development of atherosclerosis and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study was to compare the coronary plaque characteristics of patients with and without CKD using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results We identified 463 non-culprit plaques from 287 patients from the MGH OCT Registry. CKD was defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) 60ml/min/1.73m ...

Coronary Angiogram, OCT, and IVUS Imaging in a Patient 8 Years After Heart Transplantation (A) Quantitative coronary analysis showed 14% diameter stenosis in the midleft anterior descending artery (arrow) . (B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed intimal hyperplasia (IH) with thickness of 150 m. (C) Accurate measurement of IH was difficult with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).
